TASC ASL Choir
A highlight of TASC's special events, TASC American Sign Language (ASL) Choir is comprised of clients, families, employees, and community members. Albertina Nunez has led the ASL Choir for the past several years by interpreting the songs into ASL, then teaching the group how to sign. The ASL Choir had previously performed during TASC's Talent Shows, and now in a virtual environment during this post-COVID-19 era. Regardless of a physical stage or virtual screen, the universal power of music, movement and unity continues to make the ASL Choir shine with each performance.
